We asked. They answered. The entrants for the first ever essay prize, run jointly with the BMJ, impressed the judges with their thoughtfulness and effort. The standard was very high. But there had to be a winner. Very well done, Rose Penfold. The Top 10:
First (£500 prize):
Equal second (£200 prize each)
Highly Commended (in alphabetical order)
Rose’s essay will be appearing in the BMJ and the essays will be posted here very shortly. Well worth the read.
Thanks to all those who sent in essays.
